German Chancellor Angela Merkel shared a picture on her official Instagram account that shows her staring down President Donald Trump during the G-7 Summit in Canada this weekend. True to form, online commenters have since turned the photo into a humorous caption contest.
Merkelor an aide that runs her accountshared the picture on Saturday, as Trump was preparing to depart early from the meeting in Montréal, Quebec ahead of a high-stakes Singapore meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. The photo depicts Trump sitting behind a table with his arms crossed, while stony-faced aides and leaders look in his direction. Merkel looks especially peeved at the former business mogul, whose decision to raise tariffs on aluminum and steel rankled some foreign leaders ahead of the annual meeting.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is also in the photograph, standing with his arms crossed, while Trumps national security adviser John Bolton stands nearby. The meeting also included Canadas Justin Trudeau, Frances Emmanuel Macron, Italy's Giuseppe Conte and the U.K's Theresa May
Merkel's official caption is rather benign: "Day two of the G7 summit in Canada: Spontaneous meeting between two working sessions."
Many twitter users, however, had a deeper interpretation of the photograph. Merkel, arguably most powerful leader in Europe, has clashed with Trump numerous times. The two also share wildly different leadership styles. While Merkel takes a more traditional approach toward diplomatic relations, Trump, in contrast, has let his characteristic bluster lead the way, frequently speaking off the cuff and making disparaging remarks about other heads of state. Manyif not mostof the captions created by social media users riffed on that contentious dynamic.

The President’s body language in that photo says it all.

Under the definition of I could give a shit you will find that picture of Trump.
She is,after all,an *East* German and,as such,can’t be trusted as far as she can be thrown.
He isn’t even looking at her. He’s listening to M. Macron.
“Ya ve ist der Supermen”. /s
“staring down” - LOL!
“I don’t care what you say Angela, we’re not singing any Hitler youth songs.”
“Who you going to sell your Mercedes to now?
Its so awesome to have for once a President that won’t bow down to other countries. They show him respect and he will do the same..meanwhile, Obama was too busy bowing down and kissing a@@ of our enemies..oh and giving them billions of dollars of OUR money in the process
What is she wearing?
That Soros’ half man let her country be invaded.
Destroyed her culture.
She has so much blood and rape on her hands.
Good luck with that Angela, he don’t look skeered
it’s nice when you get to sit down and relax while the lesser politicians beg for audience
